Join us on 30 January 2020 will focus on the core information and telecommunication technologies applications that were built to support AOP development, management and dissemination. Tools and technical tips to facilitate scientific knowledge assembling and evaluations will also be presented.
Software to be used for Test Guidelines 305 and 318
These are the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals: Testing and Assessment Series Monographs.
The OECD Guidelines are a unique tool for assessing the potential effects of chemicals on human health and the environment. They are regularly updated with the assistance of thousands of national experts from OECD member countries. The current deadline for comments is set on 10 February 2020 for the Draft Guidance Document for the testing and interpretation of data on dissolution rate and dispersion stability of nanomaterials.
This document captures and examines schemes used internationally for prioritising chemicals for risk assessment and/or risk management, and identifies commonalities, differences, lessons learned and areas for improvement. Based on this analysis, it offers guiding principles and best practices to consider within prioritisation schemes.
Interested parties are invited to send their comments on the Test Guideline No. 458 for Androgen Receptor Transaction. Comments should be sent by 31 January 2020.
The OECD Guidelines are a unique tool for assessing the potential effects of chemicals on human health and the environment. Accepted internationally as standard methods for safety testing, the Guidelines are used by professionals in industry, academia and government involved in the testing and assessment of chemicals. These Guidelines are regularly updated with the assistance of thousands of national experts from OECD member countries.
Latest releases: AOPs are the central element of a toxicological knowledge framework, promoted by member countries through OECD, built to support chemical risk assessment based on mechanistic reasoning. Seven New AOPs have now been published.
The purpose of this document is to give guidance to Receiving Authorities on the evaluation of the GLP compliance status of nonclinical safety studies submitted for regulatory purposes. This guidance does not address the scientific evaluation and interpretation of the submitted data or the risk assessment based on these data.
